First steps to a zero-waste lifestyle

It’s clear that how we currently live just isn’t sustainable, with landfills and oceans becoming overrun with plastic. A staggering 13 million tonnes of plastic winds up in our oceans every single year, tragically killing over 100,000 marine creatures. Enter the zero-waste movement. It aims to put an end to our global abuse of plastic. It’s pretty much exactly as it sounds, i.e. a movement to live our lives without creating even the merest spec of waste. If that sounds daunting, we offer you 5 simple steps to get started. Every little bit counts.
